NUTRITION AND HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Good health habits reinforce normal brain and body functioning and influence healing, aging, weight and quality of life. Adequate nutrition and hydration, rest, exercise, and stress management are vital. The Centers for Disease Control has reported that cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, obesity and arthritis are largely preventable with healthy diet and lifestyle.
The typical American diet is highly processed and lacks sufficient nutrients. Instead of quality protein, fat, vegetable, fruit, fiber... we turn to fast food or packaged goods, full of artificial ingredients, salt and sugar. Processed goods along with depleted soil conditions worsen our food supply. We are left generally overfed yet undernourished. Adding to the burden are daily exposures to chemicals, chronic stress and sedentary lifestyles. Resulting nutrition insufficiency, toxic overload and excess weight contribute to pain, fatigue and disease processes.
A holistic doctor considers details from your health history, available laboratory data, as well as your own wellness goals to determine ways to support your good health. A non-invasive, muscle testing procedure can provide additional insight regarding the energetic balance of organs, glands and body systems. Personalized supplement recommendations and healthy diet and lifestyle guidance are popular ways to enhance wellness.
